Writing Seminar: Social Justice
This course focuses on improving students’ reading and writing skills for college-level work. Students engage in collaborative workshops with peers, individual conferences with the instructor, and a regular developmental writing practice throughout the semester. We address the writing process, working with sources, and the elements of good writing, from organization to sentence-level clarity and correctness. This sections focuses on social justice. In particular, students will be asked to engage with the campus community and the wider public while thinking about the intersections of power, race, class, gender, and sexuality. Students will also learn about careers in social justice. Students who may be interested in the Rights and Justice channel at Beloit are particularly encouraged to enroll.
